Unable to access external website from desktops but can ping and access from server and from externals
Posted on 2014-11-17
Hi all . I inherited a small network .
I am stumped by a problem and I hope you can help .
I have a website which can be accessed externally and i am able to ping and access from the server .
However when i attempt to access it from any desktops on my network I am unable to do so .
Will not display page .
I have done nslookups from both the server which works and from the desktop which doesn't.
They both resolve to the same adddess so it does not appear to be a dns issue .
When I launch tracert from the server it completes .
When I launch it from the desktops it times out before the final hop .
I am thinking it may be a firewall issue but I am unsure what I should do to verify this . Again since the server is able to resolve and ping the address I am stumped by this issue .
Thanks for your help
